"Deliver those who are being taken away to death, and those who are staggering to slaughter, O hold them back!
If you say, 'See, we did not know this'
Does He not consider it who weighs the hearts? And does He not know it who keeps your soul?
And will He not render to man according to his work?"

Proverbs 24:11-12

Hitler's Jewish Ancestry
In Germany – ALFRED ROSENBERG, the chief Nazi theoretician, writes –
"Zionism must be vigorously backed so that a yearly contingent of German Jews shall be transported to Palestine."
(A. Rosenberg "Die Spur des juden im Wandel der Zeiten" Munich 1937, p.153).

In China After the Second Sino-Japanese War broke out in 1937, the agressive and disciplined Japanese troops had already managed to take Shanghai and had just taken the city of Nanking (Nanjing) the capital of Nationalist China. With a retreat of Chinese forces the Japanese took the city with relative ease.
After the city had fallen, IWANE MATSUI the commander of the Japanese forces allowed his troops free rein with with the people of Nanjing, as a complete destruction of the city would help give the Japanese a psychological advantage over Nationalist China. Over the next six weeks, the exhausted Japanese army totally destroyed the people of Nanjing. An estimated 300,000 people are killed with nearly all of them being Chinese women, children, and the elderly. Men were allegedly forced to rape their families, children were beaten with rifles for wearing traditional Chinese clothes, children were buried alive while they watched soldiers rape their mothers and thousands were slaughtered meaninglessly by firing squads and dumped in mass graves. One of the most disturbing reports from the Nanjing massacre was the so-called 'sword-contest in which two Japanese lieutenants challenged each other to see who could behead the most Chinese in a day. At the end they both had beheaded over 100 people with their swords then carried their contest to the next day.
 Untersturmfuhrer KARL ADOLF EICHMANN is sent from Germany to Palestine with HERBERT HAGEN to assess moving Jews there from Germany.
They meet with the leader of the Jewish Haganah in Cairo, Egypt, who tries to convince them to support Jewish emigration to Palestine, but on their return they recommend against the idea as it would allow a concentrated Jewish state. (See 1957).
January 30: In the Reichstag, Germany – HITLER is saluted:
Hitler receiving the Nazi salute in the German Reichstag.
12: In Germany – The city of Nuremberg presents a first edition of Martin Luther's anti-Semitic treatise "On the Jews and their Lies" to JULIUS STREICHER, editor of the Nazi newspaper Der Stürmer, as a gift on his birthday.
15: In Germany – Jews may no longer be awarded doctoral degrees.
18: In Germany – Jews are banned from practicing as pharmacists.
France – The Jewish subsection of the Communist Party is abolished, indicating that the party is not concerned with Jewish affairs unless it is in the interest of the Soviet Union.
South Africa – Widespread anti-Jewish feeling prompts the United Party government to pass the Aliens Act to prevent large-scale German-Jewish immigration.
Parliamentary opposition leader Dr. DF MALAN (future prime minister of a National Party government from 1948), gives support for fascism among Afrikaners, blaming the Jew for all troubles of the nation.
HENDRICK VERWOERD, editor of the newspaper 'Die Transvaler' (and future Prime Minister) writes a long article on 'The Jewish question from the National Party viewpoint' (Die Joodse kwessie uit die NP se oogpunt), commenting that "the Jews have a stranglehold on the survival of the Afrikaner".
The Afrikaans newspaper, Die Burger, denies that German Jews are being persecuted.
2: Amelia Mary Earhart lands in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific with her navigator Noonan in their Lockheed Electra airplane. They are never seen again, and speculation predominates that they crashed, but more probably were
imprisoned by the Japanese forces on allegations of espionage, and die in custody.
Wednesday 7: In China – Imperial Japan attacks Beijing initiating its invasion of China.
Britain – Lord PEEL's report concludes that co-operation between Palestinians and Jews in a Palestinian State is impossible (to the dismay of Palestinians), and recommends the partition of Palestine (that is, the creation of a Jewish State), which would require radical movements of population. (See May 1939). The Peel Report, based on the rapid growth of orange groves in mainly Arab Palestine, estimates that for the 30 million crates of winter oranges by which the world consumption would rise in the following decade, the producing and exporting countries would be as follows:
Palestine:  15 million
United States:  7 million
Spain:  5 million
Other countries (Cyprus, Egypt, Algeria, etc.):  3 million
(Source: "Peel Report", chapter 8, º19, p. 214)
20: Jewish terrorists attack Palestinian-Arab civilian buses in Palestine.
Zionist Terrorism
In Syria – Unofficial representatives of Arab states meet and completely reject PEEL's proposals (See July). The publication of the Peel Report in Palestine is followed by intensified Palestinian terrorism and violence.
Britain therefore outlaws the Arab High Committee, and arrests and exiles its leading members. Syria becomes the base for continuing Palestinian Arab rebellion.
27: In Germany – Jewish women may not receive fertility treatment.
Rome – Pope PIUS XI and his German Bishops issue an encyclical condemning Nazism, but not its Anti-Semitism.
  In France –
LOUIS DARQUIER (DE PELLEPOIX) argues that the Jewish problem must be resolved urgently either by expelling Jews or massacring them
. (See 1938).
Doctor FL DESTOUCHES writes an anti-Semitic diatribe 'Bagatelle pour un massacre', arguing that France is a country occupied (as a raped woman) by Jews and that a Hitlerian invasion would be a liberation.
December 13:
In Nanking (Nanjing), capital of China – Japanese troops capture the city, and in the following six weeks soldiers of the Imperial Japanese Army murder Chinese civilians and disarm combatants numbering an estimated 40,000 to over 300,000, and perpetrate widespread rape and looting.
One third of the city is burned due to arson as many government buildings and civilian homes are torched.
The Nazi flag flies with
the American stars and stripes
at youth camps across the States

In the USA – American Jews organise a rally calling for a boycott of Nazi Germany –
In the USA – 19 Nazi summer camps and family retreats are run across the United States, from New York to California, sponsored by the Deutsche-Amerikanische Berufsgemeinschaft, DAB, or German-American Bund.
God had said to Edom –
"But do not gloat over the day of your brother in the day of his misfortune; do not rejoice over the people of Judah in the day of their ruin; do not boast in the day of distress. ...For the day of the LORD is near upon all the nations. As you have done, it shall be done to you; your deeds shall return on your own head" (Obadiah 1:12,15)
And it did!
The camps are set up to indoctrinate children and adults with Nazi ideology.
Eliminationist anti-Semitism
is now the German norm
In Germany – Dr. KARL HANNEMAN writes in the Zeitschrift Des Deutschen Arztebundes (Journal of the German Medical Association),
"Rats, bugs and fleas also occur naturally, just like Jews and Gypsies. All life is a struggle. That is why we must gradually biologically eradicate all these pests, and today that means so fundamentally changing their living conditions through preventive detention and sterilization laws, that all these enemies of our people are slowly but surely eradicated."
France – LOUIS DARQUIER (DE PELLEPOIX) receives funding from Nazi Germany for both his anti-Jewish organization Le Rassemblement Antijuif de France and his new anti-Jewish newspaper La France Enchainée ('defence organizations against Jewish invasion'). (See August 26, 1920; and May 1942).

Psychiatrist VIKTOR FRANKL is prohibited from treating "Aryan" patients due to his Jewish identity.
Austria – Illegal convoys begin to ship Jewish immigrants to Palestine (See September 1939).
12: German troops march into Austria
Austrian crowds jeer at Jewish men, women and children as they are forced to scrub streets in their best clothes, and then stand over them and urinate on their heads.
In France – This month's violently anti-Jewish special issue of pro-fascist weekly newspaper, Je Suis Partout, requires a number of reprintings to meet demand.
17: In Commodore Hotel, New York City, USA – ALBERT EINSTEIN states in a speech:
"I should much rather see reasonable agreement with the Arabs [Palestinians] on the basis of living together in peace than the creation of a Jewish state. Apart from practical consideration, my awareness of the essential nature of Judaism resists the idea of a Jewish state with borders, an army, and a measure of temporal power no matter how modest. I am afraid of the inner damage Judaism will sustain – especially from the development of a narrow nationalism within our own ranks, against which we have already had to fight strongly, even without a Jewish state."
(Albert Einstein 'in Ideas and Opinions' Crown Publishers, New York 1954 p.190)
Jewish Ancestry
and Henry Ford's
contribution to
his Antisemitism
Henry Ford and Adolf Hitler kept pictures of each other.

Henry Ford an admirer of Adolf Hitler receiving the Grand Cross of the German Eagle from Nazi Officials in 1938.
In Evian, France – The Intergovernmental Conference on the Refugee Problem (initiated by US President FD ROOSEVELT) generally expresses a total lack of responsibility for the Jewish refugee problem. The exclusion from the agenda of the question of Jewish immigration to Palestine is a condition of participation in the conference.
6: In Germany – Numerous commercial careers are forbidden to Jews, including estate agency, and credit broking.
27: In Germany – Streets named after Jews must be renamed.

27: In Germany – Jewish lawyers may only act on behalf of Jews.
In Germany – HITLER (Germany), MUSSOLINI (Italy), CHAMBERLAIN (Britain) and DALADIER (France) meet in Munich.
They come to an agreement that Czechoslovakia must cede the Sudeten areas to Germany.
This foolishness makes the Second World war inevitable!
September 1938:   
30: In Germany – Jewish doctors' licences to practice are revoked.
5: In Germany – Passports of all Jewish-Germans must now be marked with a 'J' (for 'Jude', 'Jew' in German).
In despair over the Palestinian conflict, the British government appoints a new commission under Sir JOHN WOODHEAD to reconsider the recommendations of the Peel Commission Report (see July 1937), which proposes a reduction of the Jewish area of Palestine to 1,000 square kilometres around Tel Aviv (the only area where Jews are a majority).
Both Jews and Palestinians reject the proposals. (See February 1939).
The Jewish assassin
In Paris – A young Polish Jew, 17-year-old HERSCHEL GRYNSZPAN, shoots a secretary of the German Legation, ERNST VOM RATH (who dies two days later) dealing with his illegal status in Paris, in protest against the deportation of German Jews to Poland. (German authorities had expelled thousands of Jews of Polish citizenship living in Germany from the Reich; Grynszpan had received news that his parents, residents in Germany since 1911, are among them. Initially denied entry into their native Poland, Grynszpan's parents and the other expelled Polish Jews are stranded in a refugee camp near the town of Zbaszyn in the border region between Poland and Germany)
In Germany – Big demonstrations against the Jews are organized in Kassell and Magdeburg. This, in fact, is part of the commemoration of the 15th anniversary of HITLER's failed coup d'Etat or putsch of 1923.
91 Jews are killed, many others injured, 191 synagogues burnt, thousands of Jewish shops looted.
According to GOEBBEL's diary:
"Big demonstrations against the Jews in Kassell and Dessau, synagogues set on fire and businesses demolished ...I go to the party reception in the Old Town Hall. Colossal activity. I brief the Fuhrer. He orders:
'let the demonstrations go on. Withdraw (zuruckziehen) the police. The Jews must for once feel the people's fury. That is right'."
Consequently, a telegram is sent from Berlin at 23.55 by MULLER (head of the Security Police and answerable to HEYDRICH, who in turn was answerable through HIMMLER to HITLER) to officers warning them of the forthcoming outbreak of anti-Jewish demonstrations and ordering that they were not to be interrupted.
In Germany – HEYDRICH sends a telex (emanating from HIMMLER) to police chiefs and security service officers at 1.20 am on 10 November instructing them that the demonstrations against the Jews expected during that night were "not to be" subject to the following restrictions:
" a) 
only such measures may be taken as do not involve any endangering of German life or property [i.e. synagogue burnings only if there is no danger of the fire spreading to surrounding areas].
the shops and dwellings of Jews may only be destroyed not looted. The police are instructed to supervise the implementation of this order and to arrest looters.
care is to be taken that non-Jewish shops in shopping streets are unconditionally secured against damage,
foreign nationals may not be assaulted, even if they are Jews".
Later that night at 2.10 am VON EBERSTEIN (Chief of Police in Munich) telephones to the Gestapo in various towns repeating the order that police were not to interfere with actions against Jews.
Thus, in apparent reprisal to the assassination in Paris, the Jewish community in Germany endures a night of great terror, the so-called Kristallnacht: 7500 Jewish shops and businesses are destroyed, 267 synagogues in total are burnt down, marked by killing, rape and wholesale destruction of property.
GOEBBELS' diary entry continues:
"I report to the Führer in the Osteria [restaurant over lunch]. He agrees with everything. His views are totally radical and aggressive. The action itself has taken place without any problems. 17 dead [actually more than 36]. But no German property damaged. The Fuhrer approves my decree concerning the ending of the actions with small amendments. I announce it via the press and radio. (Formally at 4 pm for violence in Vienna only begins at 10 am). The Führer wants to take very sharp measures against the Jews. They must themselves put their businesses in order again. The insurance will not pay them a thing. Then the Führer wants a gradual expropriation of Jewish businesses".
Jews arrested during Kristallnacht are deported to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp north of Berlin (see photo left).
In Germany – Jews may only draw limited funds from their bank accounts. They also may not enter cinemas, theatres, exhibitions, concerts, beaches, or holiday resorts.
In Germany – Jews are expelled from all schools, colleges and trains. Even public waiting-rooms and restaurants are now segregated.
In Germany – Jewish children are banned from state schools.
In Germany – Right wing anti-communist South African Minister of Defence OSWALD PIROW leaves Berlin (see photo left) after talks which he claims were to offer Hitler a free role in Eastern Europe in return for allowing the Jews to leave Germany.
In Germany – Local authorities may exclude Jews from particular districts and impose curfews. 20,000 Jews are now arrested and sent to concentration camps where they are severely mistreated. Such incidents are not confined to Munich: it is a nation-wide pogrom.

In Britain
In response to the developing situation in Nazi-ruled Germany, Parliament's House of Commons approves that children under 17 may enter Britain provided that they have a place to stay and a warranty of £50 is deposited for their eventual return to their own country, but the Dutch government officially closes its borders to any Jewish refugees, and the border guards (marechaussee) actively search for them and return any found to Germany, despite the horrors of Kristallnacht being well known.
(From the Dutch border, the synagogue in Aachen could be seen burning just 3 miles away)
In Prague,
Czechoslovakia – NICHOLAS WERTHEIM (WINTON), a stockbroker in London, born 1909 of German-Jewish Christian parents, while on holiday from Britain, begins to send Jewish children by train/rail to Britain, via the ferry from Hook of Holland (De Hoek), as a refuge –
eventually rescuing 669 mostly Jewish children from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia on eight trains across four countries,
with some other forms of transport also set up from Vienna.
His team persuaded British custom officials to allow all the children in despite incomplete documentation.
He organises foster families for Jewish children in Britain, placing adverts in newspapers.
is knighted by the British Queen in March 2003. He dies in 2015 peacefully in his sleep at Wexham Hospital, Slough, UK, aged 106 with his daughter Barbara and two grandchildren at his side.
3: In Germany – Jews are banned from driving, and a compulsory 'aryanisation' of Jewish businesses is imposed.
Jerusalem, Palestine – A group of Orthodox religious Jews form 'Neturei Karta' (נטורי קרתא), in opposition to the politicising of Zionism into a secular ideology and its attempts to assert Jewish sovereignty in Ottoman-controlled Palestine.
Anti-Zionist Jews
In Britain – About 70,000 German Jews are given refuge in the late 1930s. A refugee camp is established at Dovercourt in Essex.
In France – Virulently anti-Jewish weekly newspaper, Gringoire, owned by HORACE DE CARBUCCIA and  directed by HENRI BÉRAUD, enjoys a circulation of about 650,000, admires MUSSOLINI and FRANCO, and promotes appeasement with HITLER.
In South Africa's Orange Free State – Afrikaner Nationalists attack Jews and capitalists.
Palestine – One of Irgun's commanding officers, ABRAHAM STERN, leaves the parent organization and forms the 'Stern Gang', numbering some 200 to 300 dangerous fanatics, and Haganah (including MOSHE DAYAN), and blows up the Iraqi oil pipeline near Haifa.
Zionist Terrorism
Jerusalem – Jewish terrorists blow up the Post Office.
Zionist Terrorism
30: HITLER states in the German Reichstag that –
"In my life I have often been a prophet and was generally laughed at. During my struggle for power it was mostly the Jewish people who laughed at my prophecies that I would some day assume the leadership of the state and thereby of the entire Volk and them, among many other things, achieve a solution of the Jewish problem. I believe that in the meantime the then resounding laughter of Jewry in Germany is now choking in their throats.
"Today I will be a prophet again; if international Jewry within Europe and abroad should succeed once more in plunging the peoples into a world war, then the consequence will be not the Bolshevisation of the world and therewith a victory of Jewry, but on the contrary, the annihilation (Vernichtung) of the Jewish race in Europe".
In Britain – The government confers separately with Palestinian Jews and Arabs in London to find a solution to the ongoing conflict between them. (See November 1938).

Jewish immigration is to be limited to a total of 75,000 persons over the next five years when a total halt on immigration is to be imposed unless agreed to by the Palestinian Arab population, Palestinian Jews and Arabs are to be invited to share increasingly in the administration, and transfers of land from Jews to Arabs is to be subject to restrictions of the High Commissioner.
Both Palestinian Arabs and Jews reject the proposal but it brings calm to the situation, although both Jewish and Arab extremists continue their anti-British wars.
23: In Germany – The Council for the Defence of the Reich decides in principle to turn all detainees into a labour force.
29: In Palestine – Jewish terrorists attack Palestinian-Arab civilian buses again, bringing the death toll to 24.
Zionist Terrorism
the USA – A group of Hungarian scientists including émigré physicist Leó Szilárd attempt to alert Washington of ongoing Nazi atomic bomb research. The group's warnings are discounted. Albert Einstein and Szilárd, along with other refugees such as Edward Teller and Eugene Wigner, "regard it as their responsibility to alert Americans to the possibility that German scientists might win the race to build an atomic bomb, and to warn that Hitler would be more than willing to resort to such a weapon."
In the USA – Jewish Alexander Sachs (Vice President of the Jewish 'Lehman Corporation') arrives at President Roosevelt's office with a letter from Albert Einstein recommending the development of the atomic bomb.

20: In Geneva, Switzerland – At the 21st Zionist Congress one of the leaders of American Jewry opposes immigration from Germany to Palestine on the grounds that –
"...the circumstances did not warrant them." (Pitot 1998 p.21).
Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact 23:
Germany and the Soviet Union sign a non-aggression treaty (the Hitler-Stalin Pact) negotiated by German foreign minister Joachim von Ribbentrop and Soviet foreign minister Vyacheslav Molotov. (Later, during the post-war Nuremberg trials Stalin tried to blot out his alliance with Hitler from the record – with full support of his British and American allies).
In Austria – Since March 1938 to now, c.17,000 illegal Jewish immigrants have been shipped to Palestine, assisted by a Jewish Viennese financier BERTHOLD STORFER (as an agent of EICHMANN) who had been a non-Zionist Jewish representative at the Intergovernmental Conference on the Refugee Problem held July 1938 in Evian.

Germany invades Poland. (Great Britain and France declare war on the German Reich two days later).
In Germany – HITLER orders the murder of incurably insane Jews. He writes to KARL BRANDT –
"Reichsleiter Bouhler and Dr. Brandt, M.D., are charged with the responsibility of enlarging the authority of certain physicians to be designated by name in such a manner that persons who, according to human judgment, are incurable can, upon a most careful diagnosis of their condition of sickness, be accorded a mercy death. [Signed] ADOLF HITLER"
After the receipt of this order, an organization is set up to execute this program, Karl Brandt headed the medical section and Philipp Bouhler, the administrative section. Hoven, as chief surgeon of the Buchenwald concentration camp, took part in the program and personally ordered the transfer of at least 300 to 400 Jewish inmates of different nationalities, mostly non-German, to their death in the euthanasia station at Bernburg.
All Jews may not leave their homes after 8 PM (9 PM in summer).
Euthenasia Programme

last train of Briton NICHOLAS WINTON's Jewish children, being evacuated to Britain at midnight, is barred from leaving Prague. The children are eventually shipped to Auschwitz for extermination.
Karski (Jan
Kozielewski) is called up for military duty when Germany invades Poland. He manages to escape when his unit is captured by the Soviets (avoiding the fate of other Polish officers killed in the Katyn massacre in the spring of 1940). Karski twice infiltrates the Warsaw Ghetto, and also poses as a guard at the Izbica transit camp, where he witnesses Jews being herded onto train cars bound for their deaths.
As he recountes in “Story of a Secret State,” a report of his wartime experiences published in 1944, he joins the Polish underground and works as a courier bringing information to and from the Polish government in exile. At one point, he is betrayed to the Gestapo and attempts to commit suicide while in custody. He survives, and comrades arrange for his escape.
Having witnessed Nazi atrocities against the Jews, he provides eyewitness accounts to British foreign secretary Anthony Eden, US president Franklin D. Roosevelt, and US Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter.
He urges them to take action, including bombing the railroads leading to the death camps, but his message falls on deaf ears.

7: In Germany – HITLER appoints HEINRICH HIMMLER as head of a new organization: the Reich Commissariat for the Strengthening of the German Nation. Poles and Jews are to be deported from annexed territories and replaced with Germans.
9: HIMMLER decrees that 550,000 out of the 650,000 Jews from the conquered territories are to be sent east of the Vistula in a ruthless mid-winter expulsion. More than a million Poles are also deported within a year.
Germany – HEINRICH MÜLLER becomes the head of Germany's Gestapo secret police. (Müller occupies a position in the Nazi hierarchy between Himmler, the overall head of the Nazi police apparatus and the chief architect of the plan to exterminate the Jews of Europe, and Eichmann, the man entrusted with arranging the deportations of Jews to the eastern ghettoes and death camps. His chief responsibility is police work within Germany, and is fully in charge and thus responsible to execute the extermination of the Jews of Europe.)
8: In Munich, Germany – ADOLF HITLER mocks his international enemies in his annual speech, and boasts of Germany's successful start to the war.
Hitler leaves early, and a bomb planted by Georg Elser to assassinate Hitler explodes 13-minutes later, causing eight deaths, massive damage, and collapsing the ceiling just above where Hitler had been standing.
The Nazi newspaper, the Voelkischer Beobachter, later calls the event "the miraculous salvation of the Fuehrer".
